A great little hide-a-way!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cottage in March 2014. It looked exactly as pictured, very clean and well stocked with everything you would need. The patios & yard were welcoming and we used them everyday. Laundry on site and you share with the ajoining cottage. Linda & Ian were very helpful if we needed anything. Close to downtown Old Englewood, we loved the farmers market each Thursday, where we purchased produce, bakery & great shrimp! We loved walking with our 'new neighbors', Kaz & Paulette on several occasions to Zeke's only 2 blocks away on the bay side for happy hour! Loved riding our bikes on the many trails available. Loved the beautiful beaches close by, and of course I did go hunting for sharks teeth too!!
The cottage is small but overall it was clean & comfortable, perfect for 2.

Charming cottage and perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We wanted some 'Old Florida' charm in a clean, affordable rental, and this cottage delivered that. It exceeded our expectations with easy walking or cycling distance to Dearborn street and the beach. We had everything we needed with our own BBQ grill, kitchen, washer and dryer, and lovely outdoor patio's in front and back to sit and enjoy the beautiful foliage in the large, private yard. The cottage was clean and offered little touches that we really appreciated, like new cookware and attractive, new dinnerware. The owners were great and responded quickly to any questions we had. We've used VRBO for several years, and this was one of the best rentals we've had!

Perfect for two- loved it

  • 5 of 5
The location was perfect for us! It was just the right size for two and everything was clean and new. We rode bikes to downtown Englewood and walked to our favorite tiki bar for sunset most nights. The biggest draw for me was the great outdoor rooms we had for living and enjoying the lovely weather. Plants were gorgeous and well cared for. So quiet and peaceful I miss it already, going back to the same place next year! Thanks, Linda and Ian!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the cottage! The cottage was very clean and well maintained. You'll love the backyard which is a beautiful garden. You can sit on back deck and relax after returning from the beach! This is an excellent location because the beaches are within ten minutes. Old Dearborn Street is fun, it's within walking distance they have great shops and restaurants. One of our favorite's was Zeke's down at the marina which is two blocks from cottage. Fantastic seafood! I enjoying golfing and there are many
great courses nearby. The owners are very nice they make sure your everything is set for your stay. I'd recommend this place to family and friends!!

Wonderful Place and Location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are recently retired and this was our first stop on our new retiree Florida adventure. We stayed here the entire month of January and had a fabulous time. The cottage was very clean and quaint, tastefully decorated in the Florida style, well furnished and very comfortable. There is a large yard with beautiful landscaping that provides a great deal of privacy. (The photos of the landscaping on the website do not do it justice). The yard and deck were great for just relaxing and taking it easy. The owners, Ian and Linda, were very considerate and wanted to ensure that we had what we needed. Besides cable TV, Wi-Fi and the comforts of home, there is a laundry room on site that you share with the other cottage on this property. Very convenient!
The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood near Old Englewood. We were within easy walking distance of several restaurants that had a wide variety of excellent food. Many of the restaurants have live entertainment nightly. The Lemon Bay Playhouse is a surprise jewel in Olde Englewood and is within walking distance of the cottage. We attended a romantic comedy that was very well done.
Lemon Bay Park is a short walk from the cottage and here you can enjoy the walking trails along Lemon Bay. The beaches are beautiful on the Manasota keys and were about a 10 minute drive away.
We will be back next year. Many thanks to Ian and Linda.
